It was only a few weeks ago that Marvel’s “Agents Of SHIELD” closed out a very exciting and edge of your seat first half based on the introduction of the Ghost Rider. I admit that I didn’t see how such a character could even work in the television show but I remained hopeful and ended up being glued to the television each and every week as the story played out. Now that the holidays are over, the second half storyline begins with “LMD” which means “Life Model Decoy”.
I have to say that the last couple of seasons of the show have been great and there are enough inferences to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe to keep you aware of the shows connection to it. A name drop of a hero every so often or a circumstance that happened in another film are always par for the course and very welcome IMHO. As a fan of the S.H.I.E.L.D. mythology its great to find the Life Model Decoy stuff finally being introduced as its gone hand in hand with numerous comic series featuring the characters. As before the cast remains Clark Gregg, who reprises his role as Coulson from the film series along with Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Henry Simmons. If you’ve been watching the series please let me know what you thought of the Ghost Rider inclusion and how you think this new LMD scenario will be.
I wasn’t going to post anything about this season finale, but I just had to since the last few weeks of “Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD” have been so damned good and exciting and tonight the season finale for the first go round of the show is happening on ABC. Depending on your location in the states, you will need to check your local listings. Look at the dramatic art for this episode.
Boy have there been a lot of chances to use the “Movie and TV Mania” category, but I am okay with that because we love to spark you to attention about these shows that interest us and most likely you. This has worked out so far and longer time readers probably realize that I am speaking about the day of broadcasting I’ve done when films that speak directly to our audience demographic are opening up. That being said, tonight is the night for the broadcast television premiere of Josh Whedon’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.”….The acronym in the Marvel Cinematic Universe stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division but it was originally Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division back in the early days. Then it got changed in 1991 to Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate until its most recent re-branding. For me as a fan of the organization I feel it works. Do you?
